ALEC - Your Intentions Made You Toxic

: containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation <toxic waste> <a toxic radioactive gas> <an insecticide highly toxic to birds>
: exhibiting symptoms of infection or toxicosis <the patient became toxic two days later>
: extremely harsh, malicious, or harmful <toxic sarcasm>
: relating to or being an asset that has lost so much value that it cannot be sold on the market
I can’t help thinking about the article that came out at PRWatch yesterday, noting:
“You may have noticed we are limiting the use of the acronym 'ALEC,'” wrote Bill Meierling, ALEC's recently-hired Senior Director of Public Affairs in a March 13 email sent to ALEC members and obtained through an open records request.

“Over the past year, the word 'ALEC' has been used to conjure up images of a distant, mysterious, Washington alphabet organization of unknown intentions,” he continued. “The organization has refocused on the words 'Exchange' and 'Council' to emphasize our goal of a broad exchange of ideas to make government work better and more efficiently.”
The name “ALEC” is now toxic, according to the right-wing extremist American Legislative Exchange Council.
The word “ALEC” has lost so much of its value that they can’t sell their propaganda anymore on the political market.

But the important thing to remember is that “a name” in and of itself cannot be toxic.
It is the actions of ALEC and ALEC legislative members that have made the American Legislative Exchange Council toxic.
It is the extremist legislation that is pushed through at the meetings of ALEC into the hands of ALEC legislators that has made ALEC toxic.
It is the introduction of ALEC “model legislation” by ALEC state and federal legislators that has made ALEC toxic.

ALEC "model legislation" has made the American Legislative Exchange Council, toxic.
Nasty, extremist ALEC "model legislation"
Nasty, extremist ALEC "model legislation" brought to state legislatures across the United States by ALEC state legislative members.

Extremist legislation – "model legislation"
        written of, for, and by corporate interests –
Extremist legislation – "model legislation"
          written of, for, and by ALEC corporate members  –

Corporate interests pay massive amounts of money to meet privately with ALEC state legislative members to pass corporate sponsored legislation.

Corporate sponsored ALEC legislation that always has the same outcomes ,
  the manipulation of markets through ALEC legislation which has a sole
      purpose of increasing business profits/revenues
  with total disregard for community values
  results in the destruction of our representative democracy.

“ALEC” – it isn’t  your “unknown intentions” - that have made you toxic.
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), as a whole, is toxic, because we now KNOW YOUR INTENTIONS.

Don’t know who/what ALEC is?
It is time you did!!!
